Blessed once again...

Words cannot begin to describe the love we have for our GFA family. These people truly exhibit the love of God in such amazing ways including blessing our family. As many (or maybe not that many - lol) who view this blog know, the last couple of months have been "dry" as far as our support-raising goes. It is certainly not for lack of trying - we call many churches every week and seem to hear a lot of the same answer - "the economy has really hit us hard". There are definite times of discouragement but Dave and I realize that God is teaching us many things through this process, especially since we are going to have to do this for the rest of our lives. Anyway, I digress...
Last night we received a phone call from Dave Chupp - this is the man who will be "Dave's boss" at GFA. He wanted to just let us know him and his family have been praying for us and they want to see us there very soon!! I just broke down crying - good thing Dave was the one talking on the phone. People we have met for one week last November have become such a huge part of our lives and we just love them so much. I think for a number of reasons. One, we have a like-mindedness with them in wanting to reach the lost for Jesus. Two, they are so down to earth and just love the fellowship of others. And three, they are funny and even the leaders at GFA don't think of themselves highly, they are just humble people used by God and are willing to share their individual struggles with you -- wow, what if the whole business world (or for that matter world) was like this??????
It made us want to get to GFA that much quicker. Please pray for us as we continue to seek out God to where He will lead us to raise support and please if you know of any church, or anyone that loves the Lord and would love to meet with us, let us know.
We are praying for God to do a miracle and send us QUICKLY!!!

Joshua 4:24 -- so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the hand of the LORD is mighty, that you may fear the LORD your God forever."
